Bible: Isa 65:20-25

65:20 Never again will one of her infants live just a few days 1 

or an old man die before his time. 2 

Indeed, no one will die before the age of a hundred, 3 

anyone who fails to reach 4  the age of a hundred will be considered cursed.

65:21 They will build houses and live in them;

they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

65:22 No longer will they build a house only to have another live in it, 5 

or plant a vineyard only to have another eat its fruit, 6 

for my people will live as long as trees, 7 

and my chosen ones will enjoy to the fullest what they have produced. 8 

65:23 They will not work in vain,

or give birth to children that will experience disaster. 9 

For the Lord will bless their children

and their descendants. 10 

65:24 Before they even call out, 11  I will respond;

while they are still speaking, I will hear.

65:25 A wolf and a lamb will graze together; 12 

a lion, like an ox, will eat straw, 13 

and a snake’s food will be dirt. 14 

They will no longer injure or destroy

on my entire royal mountain,” 15  says the Lord.
